The nutrient makeup of Chaga is rather impressive. Its lineup exceeds many of those in a similar class for the reason that it feeds on the actual living tree, as opposed to the ground. Trees, both individual and colonies, have impressive “roots” in longevity. Some colonies of trees have manifested their beginnings over 200,000 years ago, while there are even individual trees that date back to almost 3.000 years ago existing on Earth as we speak. Needless to say, the trees have got some serious links to both longevity and the nutrients required to achieve it. The unfortunate fact in this circumstance is that we can’t eat a tree, nor can we root ourselves in the ground and mimic them, so while the birch is indigestible, and we’re still human, comes to the rescue.
Chaga successfully, shall we say, “milked” the and we can be the lucky recipients of the divine nutrition we’d otherwise be deprived of. Also, grows on a living tree, as opposed to a dead tree like most mushrooms. In that light, is a slow-growth fungus, meaning it takes 15-20 years or more to reach maturity. In those 15-20 years, has artfully grown into all of its beneficial nutrients, as you want to make sure your product is the sclerotium of the mushroom as opposed to the mycelium. Though mycelium still does contain some of the nutrients, it has been scientifically proven that the sclerotium, or body, of is more dense and fruitful.
Chaga, as already stated, is spawned from the birch, which is a revered “medicinal tree.” The naturally harbors betulin and betulinic acid, which has been shown in various studies to both inhibit
tumors and fight certain types of cancer cells, showing to also strengthen your other cells. Chaga has taken a concentrated extract of betulin out of the birch and made it digestible for us. Betulin is anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and immuno-modulating. Anti-mutagenic means that has been seen to actually help to not only to protect you but also genetic mutations or diseases.
At an astounding 25% antioxidant makeup, it has one of, if not the highest anti-oxidant contents, second to only chocolate. Chaga exceeds other mushroom supplements in antioxidants by a remarkable 23%.
Chaga also contains one of the highest known concentrations of superoxide or SOD. SOD is a naturally occurring enzyme in our bodies that helps to protect us from free radicals and, ironically, the damaging effects of oxygen. Though we need oxygen to live, one type of oxygen called singlet oxygen is one of the leading causes of aging and disease in the body. SOD’s main function is to inhibit oxidation of this type and protect your body from toxicity. SOD is naturally found in our skin and is responsible for skin-cell rebuilding, helping also to rejuvenate our skin and protect it from aging. SOD also helps to carry nitrous oxide to hair follicles, aiding in the prevention of premature hair loss or thinning. "This particular enzyme is typically found in darker green vegetables; they, however, do not even come close to the 10,000 to 20,000 active SOD units per gram nor is it as digestible in alternative forms."
Rich in various B vitamins, flavonoids, and enzymes, is an inexhaustible nutritional powerhouse. It is one of the world’s densest sources of pantothenic acid, and also rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and zinc. Chaga contains a rich content of phenolic compounds specific to that help to protect all tissues, in particular, harboring pigments such as melanin that has been shown to help skin become more radiant and regain color.
Chaga also has an impressive content of polysaccharides, which is one of the many factors that have deemed it one of the most powerful known adaptogens on the planet. Polysaccharides are intelligent long-chain sugar molecules, which not only give mushrooms bitter but also plug into the receptor sites of immune cells, helping them to do their jobs more efficiently. Neither stimulating nor depressing, polysaccharides help to bring your body back to balance and no a natural state of homeostasis. This extract that we are providing has a high content of at least 30% polysaccharides.
With high contents of vanillin, leaves you with soft undertones of the vanilla taste, and also a little extra dose of what some studies have shown to have and anti-tumor properties, making it not only one of the tastiest of the herbal but also supplementing its cause.
Chaga has been one of the Eastern Hemisphere’s best-kept secrets, being avidly utilized for its anti-aging benefits. This magical herb was introduced to the rest of the world by Nobel Prize-Winning Russian author, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, mentioned in his semi-autobiographical novel, Cancer Ward in which he speaks of the healing properties of both gathering and drinking tea.
Before our its usage dates back to the earliest days of Chinese folk medicine, used to revitalize chi, promote longevity, help to fight virus and bacteria and boost the immune system. Russian ruler, Tsar was treated with for his lip cancer. Chaga has indeed passed the test of time with flying colors, and maybe even a little extra-credit.
This is but a brief look inside of the many beneficial factors It is undeniably a leader at the forefront of all herbal supplements. It is certainly not a mystery as to why it has received its many titles and nicknames, as this phenomenal fungus is something that you simply have to (and certainly will) see for yourself.
